to handle that question and did a very good job of raising that issue. john mccain made a great point today when he said people don't bring rpg's and the weaponry that was used in this attack to spontaneous demonstrati demonstration. it's relevant. here is why it matters. when they put out word this was not a terrorist attack, it was sprung out of a spontaneous uprising, it furthers the narrative al-qaeda was in disarray and that we had, by the elimination of bin laden made this extraordinary reduction in the risk in the area. as it it turns out not only was it not true in libya, but other parts of north africa as well and the fundamental question did the administration really believe that? if they did they badly miscalculated or did they know it was true and for political reasons didn't want it out there. they were eliminating the war on terror and these groups and no longer capable of care i go out attacks against the u.s. and one or the other. either they assess wrong that radical terrorists were not capable of care caring out a for the new mattress models, but sleep train's huge year en
john mccain chose a new scapegoat. >> she was, quote, feisty according to the mainstream media. she obviously has an adoring media. look, this thing has been -- it's been a cover-up. it -- i'm sorry to tell you that probably the adoring media will now say, well, that chapter is over. >> senator, don't hold it against us just because we like secretary of state hillary clinton a lot more than we like you. that's just the way it is. that was john mccain's, by the way, second appearance on fox within 12 hours. the republicans are right on track for 2016, folks. let's turn to howard fineman, nbc news political analyst and editorial director of the huffington post media group. howard, i was struck by your comment yesterday on "hardball" where you said that the hearing was the last failed shot of the 2012 election and the first failed shot of the 2016 campaign. how are the republicans doing today? >> well, i think i said it was a desperate act, but failed shot will also do. ed, i really think the emotional energy among the republicans is about their frustration at the way they lost the pre
delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest golfers in the world, taking questions on his taxes and that old fair share of his. mickelson explaining why he backed off on gripes that more than 60% of the his income goes to the government. >> my apology is, for talking about it publicly because i shouldn't take advantage of the forum that i have as a professional golfer to try to ignite change over these issues. i love this state. i grew up here. i love it here. and i'm certainly concerned for it. i never had a problem paying my fair share because, i know that there are very few countries in the world that let you do what you do and, live in this environment. bill:
. the other story we wanted to mention is that john mccain's vice presidential pick of four years ago, sarah palin, has also been sent into the wilderness after fox news failed to reknew her contract. for the sake of clarity, these stories are not connected in any way whatsoever. thanks so much for watching. chris matthews and "hardball" is next. >>> tea for two. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, barack and hillary, good-bye or hello? was last night's dual appearance on 60 minutes a fond good-bye or a statement? was it the president's way of saying i know which way the wind is blowing? was it barack obama saying i want a democrat to replace me? hillary clinton is the best bet to do it, i'm ready for this to happen? it's powerful stuff any way you listen to it. i think secretary clinton will run for president. i don't see how she can walk away from it. she's the one woman right now in the picture who could win the president next time. not only that, i think she's the favorite of either gender and either party to win
schumer, john mccain, dick durbin, marco rubio. it's as good as it get when it comes to a picture. you throw it in there, it's got southwestern senators. it's as good as it gets for a bipartisan plan. done deal? >> i don't know about done deal. i wish it was a done deal. there's something you expect. you expect lindsay graham and john mccain to be on that list. you cannot underestimate the importance of having marco rube y -- rubio on that list. you see the shift -- >> a little defensive. he's having to play a lot defense. >> a little bit but the fact that he's a part of it and he's so well liked in that segment of the republican party for which is comprehensive is code word for amnesty is helpful. >> maria, that's the big compromise if you will, that these republicans are making. despite all this talk that nothing comprehensive can get done, rubio says, no, no, we're never going to get border security without the pathway to citizenship. >> it also shows how mccain is mentoring rubio. basically mccain sat him down and said we need to do something comprehensive. unless they pass compreh
controversial. senator john kerry is much beloved by everybody and capitol hill and even john mccain said he would endorse him. so that will go through without controversy. i think both of these men will be confirmed previously. but people don't think the secretary of defense choice is a signal maybe we will not be as aggressive as some with light in defending israel. host: that is chuck hagel. minimum wage, you expect such issues to come up? guest: first, one of the things that was most interesting about the speech yesterday, coming off a campaign that was so focused on jobs, was the relative lack of a direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. now, this was not a set of policy proposals, which woodpeck which there would be more about that in the state of the union. but it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address that he gave yesterday. as far as some of these labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the state's. i think there is a national political aspect to this. i don't know, frankly, exactly what plans they ha
sides, chuck schumer, dick durbin, john mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, you game it a lot of folks whose names you'll recognize at this announcement. this plan, we're told would provide a path to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens already here in america. and our chief correspondent campaign carl cameron live from capitol hill. >> comprehensive immigration reform has basically been stalled by gridlock for almost a decade. republican and democrats have been going forward. tomorrow the president will announce some of his proposals in a news conference and in a speech in las vegas, so this really is an example of the bipartisan senate gang of eight, so-called, calling themselves. and lay down a marker and show that congress hasn't been ignoring this, and president has not dealing with it in his first term. it does have the path to citizenship. some critics say it amounts to amnesty. first, securing the border, whether that's a fence or a wall or uses technology instead, has always been a real point of contention, they would reduce the overstayed visa, a problem. 40% of the ill
for ross perot. >> here's the deal see! >> john: we're lucky because john mccain made a rare sunday morning talk show appearance. for those of you who don't know, john mccain has in his house he sleeps in the attic and he has a pole to slide down and a red phone in case a sunday morning show calls. [ laughter ] >> john: so every week, the pole gets a ride. he's there. we'll be playing some clips from him. today, we have to have a bit of a funeral for sarah palin on fox news. >> i don't know. i would love to think that we've seen the last of her but i don't think so. >> john: i don't think so either. >> i don't think so. >> we have speculation coming out she may pop up on another network. >> john: her people are calling mr. zucker all weekend. >> she did make a comment on her interview with breitbart where she said we shouldn't just be preaching to the choir. conservatives need to reach out. which is funny because she did it on breitbart. she's setting herself up to reach out to a larger audience without getting chastised for it. >> john: i do think you're right. but also you know, when some
be sending gifts to the muslim brotherhood? senator john mccain has thoughts on that next. >> steve: a group of guys suing subway because their foot longs a little short. 11 inches. are they justified or jerks? do you really need the extra inch? e-mail us. >> brian: why didn't i get jalapenos on my turkey sandwich last night? i'm still trying to figure it out. >> alisyn: fox business alert now. labor department just releasing brand-new weekly jobless claims. 330,000 first-time unemployment claims were filed last week. that is less than the week before, brian. and less than expected. >> steve: moving in the right direction. let's bring in senator john mccain. he joins us from capitol hill. >> good morning. >> steve: it looks like fewer people are out of work, or they've given up looking. what do you make of that number? >> i think it's obviously some improvement. however slight. but i don't think anyone would disagree that the economy continues to stumble along. there are some good signs out there. the housing market for the first time is really showing some significant improvement. i think i
, senator john mccain was still demanding answers. >> the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. people don't bring rpgs and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations. here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. >> but the harshest criticism of all came from paul legacy, senator rand paul, whose ambitions and disrespect seem to know no bounds. >> i'm glad you're accepting responsibility, i think ultimately with you leaving you're accepting responsibility for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have removed you from your post. >> it felt senator dick durbin to remind the chamber about actual failures and coverups. >> i do want to make one point for the record here about whether the american people are told everything right away, in the right way, so that they can be fully informed, and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on, "ir
information. >> ifill: republican john mccain pressed clinton on why u.s. consular staff evacuated from libya to germany weren't questioned sooner. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors, who were flown to ramstein the next day, that they-- that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say that it's because an investigation was going on-- the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. so here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. now, if you want to go out and tell the american people what happened, you should at least have interviewed the people who were there instead of saying, no, we couldn't talk to them because an f.b.i. investigation was going on. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge qaddafi and try to give the libyan people a chance. and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen
into enforcement. chuck schumer of new york and john mccain of arizona were two of the senators. here is what they said today. >> other bipartisan groups of senators have stood in the same spot before trumpeting similar proposals, but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> what's going on now is unacceptable. in reality what's been created is a de facto amnesty. we have been too content for too long to allow individuals to mow our lawn, serve our food, clean our homes, and even watch our children while not affording them any of the benefits that make our country so great. >> here is what the plan includes. the creation of what the senators call a tough but fair path to citizenship. strengthening border security with new tools. establishing an effective employment verification system to prevent employers from hiring illegal workers. most will be given a provisional status. they would have to go to the bac
foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a relatively recent invention that only our rose about 5 under years ago in mesopotamia -- 500 years ago. what was the last conventional conflict that we have seen? 2008 when russia invaded georgia. there are thousands of people dying in countries like afghanistan, a rock, syria, -- mali. these are not conventional wars . we should not be surprised it has ever been thus and it will hus.ys pabe t they are the norm. we better be ready for the kind of wars we're seeing now. we're not going to be out of the business of fighting insurgencies. host: how is the u.s. military doing? how does the military prepare itself for future wars of this kind? guest: the
to face little resistance during his hearing tomorrow, though senator john mccain joked he is looking forward to interrogating his long-time colleague. >> we had a good conversation with senator kerry. we look forward to interrogating him at his hearing next week, mercilessly. we will bring back for the only time waterboarding to get the truth out of him. >> jocularity about the kerry hearing but tougher time for chuck hagel. president obama's nominee to be secretary of defense. senator mccain met with hagel yesterday and said the two had a frank and candid conversation ahead of next week's confirmation hearings for hageh. >>> joe biden beginning his second term as vice president, and he is keeping a close eye of possibility on moving down the hall to the bigger office. it's been widely reported that the president appeared to be in high 2016 campaign mode throughout inauguration weekend. mr. biden said it is too early to think about that, but he's not taking his name out of the running. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i ha
-- creepy. >> but look at that togetherness. >> we did have that. john mccain, mitt romney, marco rubio, newt gingrich, all you know talking about climate change saying we need to address it. what change? two things. first of all, the great recession. when people are concerned about the economy, issues that are important like climate change fall down the scale. the second, the rise of the tea party. are you willing to work with the other side? newt gingrich took a lot of heat for that ad with nancy pelosi during the campaign. those two factors drive this issue down, but something like hurricane sandy, that could be a wake-up call. >> and hurricane sandy cost a lot of money. now, it's tough with all the pork that went in the bills, but we got a $50 billion appropriation that just came to affected states. that cost a lot of money. so might it not, even if we're not really sure what a cut in emissions might do right now to the trajectory of the climate change that we've experienced, mite it not be worth trying to do something about things? whether through carbon monoxide emissio emissions,
.c. in january. john mccain. >> jennifer: john mccain talking with dianne feinstein, i'm sure about gun control. cutting a deal right there. >> john: it is rather unseasonably warm today. i'm thankful for that for the folks who are there. >> jennifer: tammy baldwin. >> john: yesterday i was shocked at how warm it was. a lot of folks were expressing confusion as to why the president was sworn in yesterday. the constitution requires, of course, the president be sworn in on january 20th. since federal buildings and courthouses are closed on sunday, the ceremony is still scheduled for today on the 21st which happens to be dr. king's holiday. the president's second term officially began at 12:00 noon eastern time yesterday. >> led by kevin mccarthy. >> jennifer: john dingell. god bless him. longest serving member of congress. over 50 years. his father served in congress, too. he has it in his blood. >> john: this is like the oscars for political. >> macy's day parade coverage. instead of blimps, we have politicos. >> john: what they've done with their careers. i kind of wish the oscars were a bit mo
weren't. john mccain said i would have liked to see a little more on outreach and working together. there was not, as i have seen in other inaugural speeches. i want to work with my colleagues. and i'm wondering what you think about this approach and i think that the push-back isn't surprising as much as we're surprised by just how strongly worded it was. >> republicans wasted no time whatsoever rebuking the president and the president, to be fair, this was not a speech about conciliation or compromise and in fact, the clip we heard about a nation of takers, referring to medicare and medicaid and social security, was basically a direct rebuke to congressman paul ryan, who was mitt romney's running mate. so the republicans have lots to bicker with, lots to single out in the president's inauguration speech, including the president didn't write it with the thinking of this is going to be a reach across the aisle type of message. >> yeah, obviously a very clear choice he made. let me play for you what senator tom coburn just said on "morning joe." >> i think he missed some opportunitie
saw john mccain intimating, they're trying to win some of them back here. >> absolutely. it's a group they tried to court every single election year that i can remember in the last couple years. the thing is, it's not necessarily that latinos, immigration is the number one thing on their list that's important. i think it was the economy this last election. part of it is the tone. you hear -- there's a lot of things that are said during this debate that has been hurtful to the republican party. i think when you talk to a lot of latino republican strategists they'll tell you that. so that is going to be one of the things they have to navigate. the tone and how they talk about this. in addition to -- on top of the action. >> what it really comes down to is all things being equal, though, when it comes down to immigration. that's where it stands out for this one group. >>> stand by. i want to bring in congressman steve israel who joins us right now. congressman, thanks for being here. >> good morning. >> let me start with this. even john boehner said now is the time to deal with immigrati
seated and was watching john mccain in particular, and the lines he applauded for, the lines he did not, you can look at that as portending what is possible on capitol hill. he applauded on a lot of the lines of the deficit and the mention of newtown and other issues, but notably on immigration reform, he just sort of sat there while other members did applaud. whether or not you can read something into that, i am not sure, but it is definitely an opportunity for reaction on the other side. host: to all of these issues we have been addressing the last hour, i want to look at something your colleague wrote in "the washington post." "if the president can reach a broad deal that settles some of the disputes over entitlement spending and tax code and govgiving the government borrowing authority to last through much of the term, he can use that energy to forge a bipartisan, rise on these other big issues to." guest: that is a huge point. one point that ms. mcconnell, republican leader in the senate, has made over and over again is the reason they are using to get them as leverage is they feel
questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been critical and others with john mccain. he has done a lot of leg work and going into it, i don't think that mean that is it will be smooth sailing. they will be very tough questions and in the end they thought that he would be confirmed. >> how many republicans will vote to confirm him. we will find out. who is coming up on state of the union? >> dianne feinstein will talk about a number of things including the automatic weapons ban, but we will have on as well as former general hayden. we wanted to talk about women in the military. they are uniquely qualified to look at this and say how does it change things? we will have that and a group of republicans that come on from the outside. the virginia governor to tell us how they think they can fix the party from the outside. >> 9:00 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. thanks. >> today an appeals court handed the president a stinging defeat for the panel unanimously rule and three people named to the labor relations board were appointed unconstitutionally. he used his recess po
years of george w. bush, looking at john mccain there was no way in the world democrats are going to not unite behind obama. >> we will always, always remember where we were when barack obama became president of united states. >> [newscaster] look at this crowd. this is the best of american patriotism. >> [rallygoer] my grandmother is 96 years old and she never would have thought it. my mother is 67 years old. and she said in her lifetime she never thought it would happen. >> if there is anyone out there who still doubts that america's a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer. it's been a long time coming. but tonight because of what we did on this day, in this election, at this defining moment, change has come to america. this is our moment. this is our time to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids, to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace, to reclaim the american dream and reaffirm that fundamental
and the house, like the american people, are exhausted by 10, 11, 12 years of war. obviously, john mccain and lindsey graham are on the forefront and have shaped republican foreign policy for a few years. certainly john mccain has. he is in a shrinking minority. and it's shrinking very quickly. and i suspect you're going to see a return to the realism of colin powell of dr. brzezinski, of brent scowcroft, of george h.w. bush, of the republicans who helped us and democrats who helped us through that approach when the cold war. >> and this is the post-superpower era, where there has to be some pulling back, and david said it exactly right. >> i wouldn't say post-superpower. you're right, it's a new era. it's much more indirection in our application of power. the neocons are for direct use of power. this will have to be more indirect. >> and there may be surprises there, as always is the case. look at what happened with algeria and mali. >> dr. zbigniew brzezinski, dad, thanks for not waking me up, by the way. >> in "the hill." >> yes, in "the hill." you would have been obliterated. david gr
. >> shannon: immigration reform will be front and center this week. senator john mccain is part of a group of senators poised to announce their plans for the controversial issue this week. one of our most clicked stories on fox news .com. peter doocy is standing by with more. >> senator mccain told america's news headquarters the announcement is expect #-d early this week though he didn't give any spiv. he hopes the new principles will find support outside the senate as well. >> it is very important that we act in coordination with the white house rather than opposition and with our house colleagues. but i believe we need to enact comprehensive immigration reform and i'm pleased to be part of that effort and i know that it is not without controversy. >> another popular story online, former murder suspect casey anthony has filed for bankruptcy in it a tampa court. anthony who was acquitted of killing her daughter caylee says she has more than $800,000 in debt and is unemployed. >>> a whopper of a sendoff for the fast food lover. a pennsylvania man was laid to rest this week but not before t
's right, john mccain tried, too, then had to back away when he ran for the republican nomination. the president in talking to his aides, his advisors this morning thinks on immigration he has an opportunity here in part because of his electoral victory. republicans looked at that said, we can no longer continue as a party that has such dismal showing with minorities and young voters. we have to improve our position on the yes of immigration. former florida governor jeb bush said that during the last republican campaign during the last presidential campaign. so the president thinks that by that outside pressure will create a condition where republicans will be willing to work with him. so he's putting pressure from the outside but then saying and thinking according to this advisor, that he really can make common cause with some republicans in the senate and in particular to do something big on immigration. >> john, thank you. bill whitaker, our correspondent in los angeles has been watching today's events along with a group of latinos who voted for mr. obama. bill, what are they
newtown. senator john mccain is on the senate foreign relations panel now. so is senator rand paul. on the senate side we may have some more pointed questions, but we will have to see. on the house side, they say they want to have more bipartisan attitude towards hearings. it is hard to tell at this point. there's a lot of new blood. this is their first chance, a big public opportunity to show where they are headed. so it is hardr -- to tell. probably the senate will have more pointed questions. host: give us a hint of something you will be watching for today. is there anything secretary clinton could do to damage your future politically? anything the republicans could do that might signify how confirmation hearings could go in the next couple weeks for secretary of state? guest: a few lawmakers, and the gramm in particular, have said that they had wanted to hear her testify before taking action on senator john kerry. -- lindsey graham in particular has said. the fallout from benghazi is already happened, to a large extent. president obama's first choice to be secretary of state, s
't say that. there is john mccain who knows something about losing to barack obama, he did it four years ago. but it strikes me -- i guess i was stuck to the degree that this was an unyielding and compromising of an espousal. i basically thought to myself that it was a poetic version of a speech he would make accepting the nomination of the democratic national convention, saying this is what i want and if i get to be elected, now, he has been elected and inaugurated, this is what i intend to do. bret: what you do is you go general. you articulate widely agreeable themes. there's actually some of the little bit more like the state of the union address specific sites of things that he thinks ought to be done. this was somewhere of a typical inaugural address and you may make general reference to programs but it's usually veiled in such a way that you are not accused of sticking your i in your critics >> we talk about how the party should come together. how they should not talk over each other. "the washington post" also had the communications director in which he is talking about legacy an
means the inside game just sitting down with john mccain and john boehner doesn't work so well on these issues. i think he will make aning a aggressive effort to engage the public. he has taken his campaign organization, obama for america, and turned it into an advocacy group called, organizing for action. i think part of the effort is going to be mobilize public support for his agenda. shepard: it's my understanding the vice president will be walking, there is the first lady, michelle obama. ab stod stoddard is with us. reading all the blogs, what will she be wearing. narrate if if you will. >> she is in combination a tom brown dress. she has a different bells on. j. crew and j. crew shoes. this will go to the national arc kifs immediately after she wears it. she looks absolutely smashing. understated but truly elegant. shepard: she has entered the crypt and come down the stairs. she will be announced as we she walks out. first lady will be followed by the president. let's listen as they make the now traditional walk. this is five inaugurations for me and walking down these st
